Nets at Timberwolves: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Timberwolves 122, Nets 119
Money line (ML)
The Nets had their share of troubles against the Lakers in their 126-101 loss. Irving was ejected after playing 21 minutes, and as a team, the Nets shot 18.5% from deep.
Brooklyn will be without Irving, Aldridge and Harden on Monday night and while Durant is capable of carrying the team against the T-Wolves, Minnesota will be a tough out.
Consider putting a small wager on the TIMBERWOLVES (+195) to win straight up tonight with Towns and Russell coming off strong performances.
Against the spread (ATS)
The Nets are giving Minnesota 6 points in this one, though the spread would've been much larger had Brooklyn not been missing several key players.
The Timberwolves are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games, while Brooklyn is just 2-7 ATS in its last nine games overall.
Take the points and bet the TIMBERWOLVES +6 (-110) to cover.
The Over/Under is 236.5 points, the highest of any game on the slate Monday night. The total has gone Over in each of the Nets' last three games, as well as the Timberwolves' last three, too.
Neither team is great defensively and both have players who can fill up the stat sheet. Take the OVER 236.5 (-110).
